Overview of the Domestic Relations Division

The Domestic Relations Division of the Clerk of Courts is responsible for the filing, docketing, and distribution of court papers from attorneys, judges, magistrates, child support enforcement officials, and the general public pertaining to divorce, dissolution of marriage, and domestic violence cases.

As is the case with the other divisions of the Clerk’s office, the primary challenge is one of information and records management.

Many of the cases processed in Domestic Relations Court involve support to minor children. Thus, our system requires constant tracking of cases and frequent updating as court orders are amended and/or the children reach adult age.

As a service to our customers, we offer numerous forms and instructions. These may be obtained by visiting our office in the Family Court Center.
